Kinsterna Hotel Monemvasia

Monemvasia, Greece - £££

Nestling high on a hillside in a little-visited corner of the beautiful Peloponnese, the Kinsterna Hotel is a stunning 13th century Byzantine/Ottoman mansion house, lovingly restored and renovated entirely in harmony with the landscape. From its vantage point, there are quite splendid views over the fairy-tale castle rock town of Monemvasia to the azure blue Aegean beyond. The gastronomic restaurant serves fine Mediterranean cuisine featuring ingredients produced in the hotel grounds, including olive oil, citrus fruit and vegetables, all served with a contemporary twist and accompanied by fine boutique house wines from the mansion's privately owned vineyards. What is really unique at the Kinsterna Hotel is its signature river-like swimming pool, which has as its source, a freshwater spring that emanates from the hotel basement.

Insider Viewpoint

Quite simply, the Kinsterna is a real gem, hidden away in this beautiful yet still little-known part of the Peloponnese. Sitting relaxing by the fabulous pool and appreciating the delightful views over the olive groves and citrus orchards is just magnificent.  The restaurant menu dishes are designed by the chef to complement the wines grown in the hotel vineyards, so what a joy to sit with a glass of lovely crisp dry wine in hand and admire the vineyard where it came from. Nearby fortified Monemvasia is wonderfully atmospheric and filled with tavernas on the ramparts overlooking the sea.

A beautifully restored boutique hotel with exquisite views.
